Trinley Athup – Women Deliver

Trinley Athup

Advisor, Virtual Program & Platform

Trinley believes that nuanced, compassionate, and rational discussion is crucial for advancing global human rights and promoting gender equality.

Immediately following the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal, Trinley left her professional career in New York and moved to Nepal to provide emergency on-the-ground aid and support. During her relief work visits to Nepal’s rural villages, she observed unimaginable levels of misery endured by women in general, but notably, those suffering from debilitating reproductive health issues such as pelvic organ prolapse, the causes of which are rooted in gender discrimination. As a result, she co-founded the NGO Khema Nepal in early 2017 to serve these women and give them a second shot in life. Through partnership development and cross-functional collaboration with different grassroots and international groups, she designed and implemented Khema’s comprehensive prolapse treatment program, providing free medical treatment to marginalized women and restoring their health, wellness, and dignity.

She brings a decade of experience in progressively responsible leadership roles in procurement, project management, program design, implementation, and risk management to her new position at Women Deliver. She worked at Volunteers of America-Greater New York from 2008 – 2015 before co-founding Khema. Most recently, she was a consultant at the WHO IBP Network, where she oversaw virtual conferences around advancing Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).

Trinley holds a Master’s in Public Health degree from New York University and a Bachelor’s in International Relations from SUNY New Paltz.
